Shattered Grimoires Custom Commission Skin Request
Hello! If you are reading this, then you know what we are looking for an experienced ProBoards skinner to make a custom skin for our site! Before we begin, we expect to pay around $200 because that seems to be about the average skin price. Method of Payment is preferably PayPal. We can make an upfront down payment of up to $100 with the rest payable after receiving the full skin.
If we aren’t reaching out to you, we would like to have seen a small portfolio of your work (ie previous site skins you have done). We are looking for a skinner who can make tabbed headers and hover-able customizable mini profiles. We don’t have a specific time frame, but it would be nice to have it within at least 2-3 months after initial down payment or by the end of the year 2020.
We operate mostly in EST, our site owner and the site coder/GFX mod is also EST. Contact is preferably through Discord, Badtz-Milk#0240 or Ardere Kasai#5024. We would like to keep an open channel of communication with monthly to two week updates, depending on how long you expect to work on the skin. We want to make this as easy as possible for you and for us!
We are not expert site coders. So giving us something that is relatively easy to switch out images or make minor edits to would be most preferable. Please be aware that we may find/look for other skinners and it may take time before we can confirm who we wish to work with. We will do our best to communicate how we proceed.
Site Information and General Skin Request
Here is our site link - Shattered Grimoires
Currently, we are making use of a pre-made theme with some minor edits made by our resident site coder. But we are definitely looking for a site skin we can call our own!
We are a Black Clover RP board, Black Clover is an anime/manga franchise that is set in a medieval fantasy world. We are looking preferably for a dark theme skin with the potential option of having a light theme alternative. Our main site colors are reds and blacks. For the new skin we would also like to have accents of white and gold.
Overall, we would like a more modern, edgy, clean, (sexy) and not as block-like style. Images would preferably be taken as general animanga fantasy images and/or taken directly from the official Black Clover source material. And it would be great if you could add icons that have crowns, also giving us something of a regal aesthetic.
Site Skin Requirements
Compatible with the Monetary System: Our site employs the use of the Monetary System plugin, it is really required for the mechanics of our site. Having this displayed upon the mini profile and main profile of accounts so staff can edit it is essential.
Image Board Descriptions: We prefer having pictures for our various RP boards. Currently descriptions are somewhat wonkily separated from the images of their boards, employing the use of the image board descriptions plug in, but if they could be hovered over for basic description this is much more preferable. The current sizes for images are 200x300, but this can be easily changed.
Quick Menu: Our current skin makes use of a pop-up quick menu option that leads to easy quick links such as: edit profile, messages, notifications, and participated threads. We would like to keep this option and add another quick link that is switch account, which allows a user to switch their current account to another on the board for quick access.
Account Pictures visible on forum: For structure on the board itself, having the account picture visible is really nice!
The current site header is a tabbed header that has several pages for site events, blurbs, staff pages and etc. We would like to have a format like this that is similar. Each requirement doesn’t have to be a new tab, just these are the things that need to be in there somewhere.
Two places for General Blurbs - Ideally, there would be a place for the generic site blurb and then another a space for a paragraph or two that describes our site’s Roleplay setting.
Disclaimer - Also a spot for our site disclaimer, ie stating we are an RP board based on the Black Clover franchise. Also this can be a place where you (the skinner) can place your signature/proof of your skin.
Space for two (2) Event Links - Ideally, we would like a space for up to two event links to be placed here with small descriptions and clickable images that we can change out per event.
Discord Link - potentially a widget, just a place to have our discord easily seen and accessible from the header.
Staff List with space for up to ten (10) staff members - A place that has images of staff members where their images are clickable links to lead to their profiles as well as the ability to label what the staff position is (IE Mod, Admin, etc)
A space to label the Current Season and Year for in the role play
Navigation Tree - The Navigation Tree will lead to 8 various links
- Site Rules
- World Info
- Character Rules
- Office of the Wizard King
The footer of course will have the latest thread updates, latest members online and general site statistics, these can be formatted however you wish.
Site Census - This would be great to have as we have an upwards of up to 13+ major member groups on our site. Realistically, it could be difficult to have without making it appear too cluttered. Preferably, this is editable post giving us the skin, but not too complicated.
Affiliations - Place to put our affiliation buttons.
Mini Profile & Regular Profile Remodel Requirements
We really like the aspect of a hoverable mini-profile that displays several important aspects of character accounts. Our current size for the hoverable mini-profile is 270x400 but this also can be changed. All of this information will preferably also be included in the regular user account profile.
- Colored Member Group
- Faction Rank
- Character Rank
- Gold Stars
- Staff Custom Title
- User Custom Status
- OOC Played By
- OOC Time Zone
- A link (icon) to Application
- A link (icon) to Stat Page
- A link (icon) to Grimoire/Inventory
Thank you so much if you happened to read all of that. If you have any questions, please reach out to me on discord Badtz-Milk#0240!
Thank you again and have a great day!
